Here is an undisputable 100% scientific fact: some of us are born half mermaid. Okay, so maybe it isn’t totally true, but let’s face it: among us, there are some people who absolutely love the water. Even if you don’t live near the beach, you might feel an affinity towards water or swimming, which means that it tends to be an important part of any vacation you might take. Here are some vacation ideas for all you half mermaids out there…
Try Out Water Sports
If you love the water and you also love activity and exercise, then there’s nothing better than learning how to do some water sports, whether that’s taking a trip to the gorgeous rocky (yet cold!) coasts of Cornwall in the UK to learn to surf, or learning from the real pros in Hawaii. You could take a trip to the lakes if you want to try out water sports like jet skiing in slightly calmer waters – and if the lakes are surrounded by woods then you could stay in a gorgeous wood cabin and take hikes as well.
Go On A Cruise
If you want to relax in style, then why not take in a cruise? You could explore the fjords in Norway, take in the Aurora over Iceland, or try a more tropical cruise much further down south where you can spend your days enjoying cocktails on the deck, taking occasional dips in the pool, going on days out to visit local villages, and of course inhaling the sea breeze. For real luxury, why not try the Middle East? A yacht cruise around Dubai is the stuff of dreams, and of course you could also take in some of the incredible shopping afterwards.
Take A Relaxing Beach Vacation
Life can be stressful enough without taking stressful vacations too. Although we all enjoy exploring new cities and learning new languages, sometimes all you really want is to drink a margarita and le by a pool. Of course, if you really love the water then chances are you’ll be in and out of the pool and the ocean all day long and your fingertips will spend most of your vacation wrinkled and prune-like. If you don’t feel completely confident in the ocean because of the tides, first of all it’s crucial to make sure that it’s a safe time to swim. You could also take some lessons in your hotel pool to feel more confident – but make sure you stay close to shore.
Explore The Great Barrier Reef
If you want an area of great natural beauty then there’s honestly nowhere better than the Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland in Australia. Stay at the Whitsunday islands, which are surrounded by white sand beaches and still waters that you can sail in. The Great Barrier Reef spans 13000 miles in length and has incredible marine life diversity, including more unique species of animals and plants than anywhere else in the world. It’s perfect for anyone who loves scuba diving, snorkeling, and marine exploration.
